ESPN and ABC will be airing 13 hours of the X Games Aspen 2024, which means you won’t have to hunt for travel deals in order to watch the sporting events live. Joining this year’s lineup of impressive athletes are two-time defending SuperPipe Snowboard champion and five-time X Games gold medalist Scotty James, as well as 22-time X Games medalist Mark McMorris, who will be looking to defend his gold medal.

Samsung Men’s Ski Slopestyle will see Colby Stevenson attempt to repeat his gold medal performance from last year, and historymaker Reira Iwabuchi is also set to come back after snagging gold last year during Pacifico Women’s Snowboard Big Air while also becoming the first female snowboarder to successfully land a frontside triple under flip in competition. X Games and Olympic gold medalist Eileen Gu will also make her return to the Samsung Women’s Ski Slopestyle event after having to miss the 2023 X Games Aspen due to an injury.

This year, the sporting event is also encouraging you to upgrade your winter skincare routine by making Thayers the first official beauty and skincare partner of the X Games. The budget-friendly line is available at Walmart and includes the popular Hydrating Milky Toner, Soak It Up 80 Hr Liquid Moisturizer and the Hydrating Milky Cleanser. Each one is formulated to withstand the challenges of extreme sports and weather conditions, while providing a simple three-step routine to help keep your skin hydrated and healthy all year round.
